Player Comments:

  • "As the score suggests, Sanket was as usual far too good for me in the first set. The windy, slippery conditions and the low bounce were great levellers in the second though, which I managed to win after an epic deuce with Sanket serving at 4-3. I hadn’t planned for a third set TBH so many thanks to Sanket for accepting that I had to leave due to work commitments after 90 minutes with such good grace and agreeing to complete the match at a later date, something I’m very much looking forward to.
